Denne Cuvée Prestige er lavet på næsten 100% Grenache fra 100 år gamle stokke. Den kommer fra det sydlige plateau Bois de Ville, hvor Saint Prefert også holder til. Det er nærmest en genistreg at få et så sydlige terroir til at smage så elegant . Dette er vinen for den, der både vil have finesse og monumental kraft. Domaine Jean Royer
Brilliant red. Expansive, mineral-tinged red berry, floral pastille and Asian spice aromas, along with hints of succulent herbs and incense. Appealingly sweet and seamless in texture, offering energetic raspberry, boysenberry and lavender pastille flavors that show outstanding clarity and lift. Fine-grained tannins provide frame and grip to the nervy, focused finish, which lingers with wonderful persistence and repeating florality. This remarkable wine should drink well through a long, steady aging curve thanks to its harmonious blend of fruit, acidity and tannins. ”94-96point Josh Raynolds/ Vinous.
“Far and away Royer’s best wine this year is the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige, which seems to finally pull together all of the ideas he’s been playing with .The blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre spent time in demi-muids and stainless steel and found harmony, developing lots of wonderfully silky, supple tannins that linger easily on the fruit-and-spice-laden finish. Terrific” 95 point Wine Advocate
